The Vikings will be wearing full pads for Monday’s practice and RB Dalvin Cook showed no reticence about what lies ahead when he was asked if he’s set to take a hit.
“I’m ready to deliver it,” Cook said, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “That’s what I’m ready to do. That’s my mind-set, man. I’m going to go out there and play and be me. I know my knee is fixed. I know I’m healed up. Put the time in, go out there and play.”
Cook was given the green light for full practice heading into camp, the story said, and he was feeling comfortable enough about his recovery from a torn ACL that he ditched his knee brace. The story added there hasn't been any details about the team's plan for Cook in preseason games but he appears set to play Aug. 11.
